Ahronian Landscape Is Taking Good Care of the Historical Society

by Paul Saulnier

Volunteers from the society have spent several days weeding and pruning the beds around the house.

Last weekend a group of volunteers planted new shrubs and perennials under the direction of Rick Kattman, Landscape Architect.

This week, Ahronian Landscaping and Design sent Doug, above, to trim, shape and mulch the beds.

The results are spectacular. The beautiful gardens are what attract renters from all over New England. The income from the rentals helps the society maintain the building and grounds and preserve the artifacts in its collection. Thanks to the vote of the residents at the last town meeting, the ornate railings and balusters on the second level of the porches, pictured below, will soon be restored to their former glory by contractor Mark Dellicker.
